Windows 10: Should I upgrade to Windows 10?
What the OP is likely concerned about is the collection of personal data and that's not taking place. It's only use telemetry.
I am not a fan of Windows 10 (not just the privacy thing, but other reasons), I like 7 and 8 (with a 3rd party menu).
However, if you upgrade you can try it for awhile (1 month) before the upgrade is permanent. It has a restore to previous version option available and works without a hitch. If you go beyond the 1 month then you will have to reinstall your old Windows 7, via disk or OEM disks, if I am not mistaken.
Not really true, you could make a complete image backup, before upgrading to Windows 10, then go back to your old OS anytime you want.
I would not use Windows to make that image backup thou. Use a free program like Macrium Reflect to make your complete image backup.
I feel that we as experts on this forum should try and persuade any novices who are not sure about upgrading to Windows 10 should help explain why its good for them to upgrade from earlier versions.
So I'll start off:

Read somewhere that the latest Win 10 Insider Prev will be upgrades to Win 10 full when it is released. A good idea to install this sooner rather than upgrading Win 7 / 8.1 to 10?
